Impressive Florida Clinic to be completed by mid-February!
After four years of hard work, only a few touch-ups remain at Florida Clinic, and the results are astounding.
What was once a small clinic with no more than eight consultation rooms has been exceptionally transformed into a bigger, cleaner and more modern place for the residents of Ward 70 to visit with their health issues.
The newly constructed clinic resembles a mini hospital with 18 spacious consulting rooms, a pharmacy, an emergency stabilisation unit, counselling rooms, a group room for ARV treatments and TB therapy, a testing facility and antenatal care. The vegetable garden and children’s play area only add to the charm of the new clinic.
Measures have also been taken to ensure that there are no excuses to turn patients away. A 48 000 litre water reserve tank stands in the front of the building to ensure the clinic does not run out of water, and solar panels and generators will ensure that there is always electricity.
By the time Florida Clinic is completed next month, it will be the perfect place for the rapidly growing Ward 70 community (and surrounding communities) to visit for their health needs, and will therefore also take a lot of pressure off the other government clinics in the Roodepoort area.
